Use the approach and simple questioning techniques shared in Teach Your Kids to Think.
A winner of the Kidlutions Preferred Product award, the book Teach Your Kids to Think: Simple Tools You Can Use Every Day is designed to help parents teach their children how to think wisely and well during the time they already spend together. Using the latest research on intelligence and how we think, author Maria Chesley Fisk, Ph.D., has created a series of easy-to-use, fun tools that can be used whenever parents are with their 4- to 12-year-old kids. The tools are divided into sections that correspond to different kinds of thinking: analytical, creative, social & emotional, and practical. She created her thinking puzzle, used throughout the book, to represent how interrelated these thinking skills are and how they all work together to help our kids develop their multiple intelligences. Available on Kindle, too!

Praise for the Book from Learning Experts:
The main criterion by which a child's learning will be judged in this century is not how much information has been memorized, but how well he or she can apply thinking skills to the challenges they face in their work and daily lives. This book is a basic primer for developing these skills and should be in every home and classroom where people care about the future of learning.
